Thread: New admins, new moderators

  1. #1

    Default New admins, new moderators

    Dear Skins.be members,

    There have been a few unexpected changes within the crew. We had to replace The Caretaker and mersa on unfortunate terms. There is some friction regarding several issues of forum and main site, resulting in the loss of trust, and we were not able to find a way to still work together.

    It's time to look forward and wish to introduce to you the new crew. Batou and BabyLamb will serve as the new admins, while Wishmaster132 and 007 join the crew as new mods.
    Congratulations. We're positive that they'll do a good job.

    Guybrush and the Skins.be Team

    I guess firing them is understandable but to bann because someone disagrees with you..

    Is it against the rules to disagree with something?
    No, I won't delete your account.



    Guess who's back?

    It's a black page in this forum's history...
    It's hard to believe this really happened.
    Not that I wouldn't care if I didn't know them, but seriously, what could they have done possibly something which leads to such consequences? If you had disputes about stuff, I'm really questioning where the bad spirit is. Ever considered you have removed the only good part? Besides, if things go wrong, it's up to the owners (leaders) to take their responsability, not to shove it to people who can't do anything about it.
    I'd say it's an irresponsible decision. Forum and Main site have know better times then recent, and I'm pretty sure it won't get better after this. Thanks for bringing your own site and forum down, thumbs up dudes.

    Don't know what to say... a big thank you to two of our biggest contributors of the forum. We already "lost" Kros, now also mersa and TheCaretaker. It's always hard to see a friend suffer, doesn't matter in which circumstance. They're treated unfair, and it shouldn't be happening. Period.

    And Justice for All... Something he was proudly carrying and promoting... you guys should think about it. Wake up!

    Oh yea, before I forget: Obviously congrats to the promoted members. I know you couldn't help this preventing from happening, and there won't be held anything against you (at least not from me). But know you have the duty to fill a huge gap.

    Sad to see the loss of mersa and The Caretaker :/
    Unfortunately things like this happen.

    And I welcome welcome Wishmaster132 and 007 as new mods and the promotion of Batou and BabyLamb.

    I agree with every single word you said Imperator. The Caretaker has been no doubt the biggest contributor in this forum for several years and this is how you thank him? Not fair I think.

    Anyway congrats to new staff for promotions. Especially Batou, you really earned this after being involved for so long.

    Just to say I have no clue what happened. The Caretaker stopped talking to me since the creation of the Dakota Fanning thread. (Indeed)
    Then every time a new mod or admin stepped up or down I found it along with the rest of you.
    Thinking of leaving too.

    As long as we dont know what really happened, we cannot judge the punishment.

    it's a sad, sad day...

    TC & mersa were members for a very long time, they contributed a lot to skins -
    wallpapers for the mainsite, cleaning up all the mess in here, tons of picture posts and of course fun.
    without them skins wouldn't be what it is today. thanks a lot for everything, guys!
    it's really sad that it ended this way.

    nevertheless, congratulations to
    007, wishmaster, Batou & BabyLamb.
    I wish you all the best and good luck with your new duties.

    Dude... da fuck? I mean obvious congrats to 007 and Wishmaster, but seriously? I think we deserve to know what really happened to TC and mersa, they were both monumental parts of this forum, and to just get rid of them like that, and leave us with a completely vague reason, is quite lame.

    Also, keep in mind, tomorrow (and in some parts of the world, today, is April 1st... I'm just sayin...

    xelf,
    You are huge contributor to this site. Please stick around.
    Congrats to all the new admins and mods!
    As far as CT and mersa, change is inevitable and the owners of a site can do whatever they want without explaination. Maybe those two did something embarassing and didn't want the reason known. idk.
    Cheers to what is still a damn good forum.

    I also think this must have an important reason.
    And I also think it doesn't make much sense now to speculate in here what happened and who or who not did anything. Let's deal with it, and like Cangrejo maybe this is also a good thing for some positive change, remember, change doesn't have to be bad always.

    Well congrats to the new members of the staff.

    While it would be interesting to know what happened between The Caretaker, Mersa and the owners of this site and related forum and stuff, its not going to do anything to get those two unbanned and if they got banned whatever they did the powers that be felt it was worth that punishment.

    That said like others said its sad that it happened and though some are wondering if its a April Fools Day joke which is possible but doesn't seem to be the sites staff style to do so.

    Best of luck to the new staff and hopefully nobody else departs

    I second the Avril and Hayley pictures comment. I guess it's back to some crappy website with tags to see pictures of her.

    Oh well. Good luck to the new guys.
